Stopped for lunch didn't have the buffet but it looked very good and fresh I took a picture and will post it. Had taco salad was a little bummed it didn't come in a fried taco shell but very good other wise , complimentary chips and salsa were too easy to full up on lol very good refried beans, and two types of salsa one hotter than the other. Very authentic kids loved their plates wife loved hers they also serve shirley temples here:) great atmosphere and decor I took pics , will be posting great place to eat reasonably priced

We were looking for seafood, being on the coast and all. La Flor has a nice selection of offerings. We went at dinner so the price was a little higher. The salsa is good, spicy but not too much and they also bring your a plate of refried beans so you can dip your chips in beans and salsa while you look over the menu. The food was abundant. I ordered a shrimp dish (don't remember the name) and there were a lot of shrimp as well as onions, green peppers and a green tomatillo sauce. The shrimp tasted fresh and was not overcooked - always a danger when ordering shrimp. I thought there was too much lemon - the balance was a little off but good anyway. The rice was really good. The corn tortillas that came with were tasty and, I think, housemade. I asked for regular beans instead of refried and they were good too. The wait staff was attentive but not hovering and responsive to requests. The decor was pleasant - painted wood with Mexican theme. I'd go there again.

Of all the Mexican restaurants in Brookings, this one seems better than the rest. The interior design is nice...especially the carved chairs. The food?...it's ok, not great. The buffet is nice and gives you the best variety. The owners are very nice.

In our opinion, this is the best Mexican food in Brookings. It is authentic and very tasty. Flor makes her own corn tortillas and her salsa is outstanding!

They have quite the spread for lunch, including enchiladas, meats, taquitos, dessert, and even drinks like horchata. The homemade corn tortillas are excellent, and the fried ice cream is delicious (and HUGE). The potato skins are also very good as they are out of the ordinary with a Mexican spin.
